Features

30-Pin Bluetooth Adapter: The Cable Jive dockBoss air turns your 30-pin iPod dock system into a wireless Bluetooth audio system. The dockBoss air features a 30-pin connector which plugs into your iPod system's 30-pin dock and features built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming.

Bluetooth 2.0 (A2DP/AVRCP): The dockBoss air features built-in Bluetooth (v2.0) with support for A2DP and AVRCP. Now you can stream audio from practically any Bluetooth-enabled device to your 30-pin iPod dock system. You can even use your system's remote control to operate basic playback functions such as Play/Pause. Compatible Bluetooth devices included Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows smartphone, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computer, and other audio devices with built-in Bluetooth.

Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Cable Jive dockBoss air.

Incompatible Systems: The dockBoss air is compatible with many 30-pin iPod docking stations, including systems from Bose, iHome, JBL, and other popular brands.

1 question already asked

Yes it does! [ Michael  Oct 23, 2015 ]
I am using it on a Altec Lansing speaker dock, which I formerly used with my Apple Ipod Nano. I am not sure about the Bose sounddock. But DockBoss should work fine with any speaker dock that has the male connector that fit into or docked the old Ipod or MP3 devices from 7-8 years ago. It Bluetooth's great with Pandora on an android. [ William  Oct 22, 2015 ]
Yes. Simply put, this is one of the most useful items that I've ever purchased. [ WILLIAM  Oct 22, 2015 ]
Yes, this is why we purchased. A great option and has worked very well! [ DONALD  Oct 22, 2015 ]
I do not know about that but every thing that I have used it on worked flawlessly as long as you are line of site..2 ???? [ Brent  Oct 22, 2015 ]
